REVEREND RAVEN & THE CHAIN SMOKIN’ ALTAR BOYS
Bringing crowds to their feet at the hardest-to-please and most sophisticated nightclubs in the Midwest, Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys play straight-up traditional blues with a big dose of passion. With smoking grooves served up with hot harmonica and smooth, stinging guitar, they play original songs peppered with nods to Slim Harpo, Little Walter, and the Three Kings. Born and raised on south side of Chicago, the Reverend has been playing the blues since 1971 when he first saw Freddy King play at the Kinetic Theatre in Chicago. After 15-year hitch in the Navy, he moved to Milwaukee where he began a long friendship and collaboration with Madison Slim, the long-time harmonica player for Jimmy Rogers. Since 1990, the Reverend has opened for B.B King, Gatemouth Brown, and Pinetop Perkins and many others at various festivals. For the last 16 years, he’s been on rotation as a headliner at Buddy Guy’s Legends.
